As a thanks for subscribing to my email list, one of you gets a cosmic mug every week, chosen randomly, totally free! I hope to give more people the experience of using this new, valuable type of art. This week’s winner has an email waiting in your inbox, ready to receive this free mug anywhere in the US or Canada!
Hope everyone is having a great summer! This weekend I’m showing pots in Duluth, MN for Art in Bayfront Park. If you’re in the area, come see my newest Cosmic Mugs! Can’t make it? Be sure to check out Facebook or Instagram as I’ll be posting gorgeous photos of the mugs outdoors all weekend- these mugs actually change color in the sun!
In the coming months, I will have a HUGE selection of Cosmic Mugs available at discounted prices. I also plan to run a few free giveaways…so be sure to stay tuned to your email for updates! Part of this upcoming project involves this new video, which shows the process of how the mugs are made on the pottery wheel. Enjoy!
46 years ago today, the first humans set foot on the moon. As a potter, I’m obsessed with making marks. This photo shows Buzz Aldrin making footprints on the lunar surface:
Aldrin’s mark on the moon will impact society forever. Earlier this year, my friends at StarTalk Radio helped get a cosmic mug into Buzz Aldrin’s hands (also- StarTalk just put out this awesome podcast episode with Bill Nye talking about his change of heart towards GMO foods). As more and more celebrities like Buzz Aldrin own cosmic mugs, my hope is that my art will help people think about important marks we all make on society.
To help celebrate this important day, the Bigcommerce Blog generously agreed to host a giveaway of my newest cosmic mugs! You can enter the giveaway here:
Bigcommerce has helped me sell pottery online for the past four years. Their online store hosting is a key reason that I have been able to make a living as a full-time potter. They generously let me write this guest blog post on their website:

Special thanks to Ceramics TECHNICAL magazine for publishing an awesome pottery article written by author Marissa Deml! Marissa and I worked together last year and came up with the idea to create “Cosmic Mugs.” As a Marketing Intern, her final project was to write and submit an article to a professional publication. Thanks to her skills as an author, our work got published! You can read her four page article below, and also purchase a hard copy of Ceramics TECHNICAL here.
